Abstract: <p>Remote sensing techniques have come a long way since photographs were taken from hot air balloons in the 1850s. Now, the highly sophisticated field of remote sensing is providing information essential to a growing number of applied science areas, including transportation system development, water resources management, urban and regional planning, environmental monitoring, and building energy management. The objective of this conference is to bring together those who wish to know how remote sensing can help them and those specialists who have effectively used remote sensing techniques so that practicing engineers and other interested persons can increase their knowledge of the many civil engineering applications of remote sensing. To help meet this objective, the papers in this volume present specific examples of remote sensing as applied to the solution of civil engineering problems. These papers are divided into four main sections: Land applications of remote sensing, water applications of remote sensing, thermography applications, and general applications of remote sensing.</p>
